Samoa Layered Cookie Bars

Maybe your house is currently like mine. We have our living room filled with Girl Scout cookies at the moment. Our second grader has been busy selling and let me tell you, everyone sure loves their cookies!

I came across a recipe contest a while ago that incorporated Girl Scout cookies. Looking for a fun challenge, I immediately thought of these bars. Based off a traditional seven-layer bar, I knew these would be a fabulous choice.

Not only are they super easy to make, they have all the flavors of the ever popular Samoa cookie. Or caramel delites as they are called in the Midwest. I recommend using caramel bits in these bars, you'll still get that wonderful caramel in the filling but by using the bits,  it will stay soft. We don't need any broken teeth, now do we?

You've still got plenty of time to grab yourself a box, I know we will have boxes available until March 29th. So support a great group in your area and try these bars!

Samoa Layered Cookie Bars

1 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs
1 box (12 cookies) crushed Samoa cookies, divided
5 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/3 cup caramel bits
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

In a bowl,  combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup cookie crumbs and butter. Press into a 11x7 inch baking pan.

Sprinkle over the crust in this order: chocolate chips, coconut, caramel and rest of cookie crumbs. Drizzle condensed milk over bars, Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until bars are set.

Let bars cool completely before cutting into squares. Makes 12-15 bars.
